Letter to the editor: Re-elect Stanley Paige Zeigler to continue the good work

Mon, 10/08/2018 - 3:15pm

I am just one of many who are grateful to have Stanley Paige Zeigler as my Representative in Augusta and hope that he is re-elected! The towns he serves in District 96 are Belmont, Liberty, Lincolnville, Montville, Morrill, Palermo and Searsmont.

Representative Zeigler brings a broad background of experience to this position. In addition to one legislative term behind him (with 100% attendance), he also has a diverse work history along with being a parent and husband. Before his 35 years in the Merchant Marine where he rose to Captain, he was employed as an ambulance attendant, logger, teacher, and drug rehab counselor.

Giving back to his community is important to Rep. Zeigler and since retirement he has jumped in with both feet. He is Chairman of the RSU 3 School Board and Vice Chairman on the Board of the Unity Area Regional Recycling Center. These volunteer positions give him valuable insight into a number of issues before the legislature. With new restrictions on recycling, Maine needs creative approaches to reduce our waste stream. And the complex issue of education funding affects everyone. With Representative Zeigler's combined experience on the school board and in the legislature, he brings a valuable comprehensive perspective to the table.

During his first term, Representative Zeigler was appointed to the Environment and Natural Resources Committee. This engaging work has sparked him up with ideas for new bills moving forward. Please join me in re-electing him to carry on his good work!
